SBA ASSESSMENT SCHEDULE
Rockwell begins our SBA assessments this week in grades 3, 4, and 5. No extra preparation is required for the SBA, but you can help your child be their best by making sure they are at school ON TIME and with a healthy breakfast in their tummies, well-rested from a good night's sleep. We try to keep stress to a minimum as we know some kids worry about these tests; please help them realize that while we do want them to try hard, SBA is also just one indicator of student success. We, like you, want to help grow healthy, well-rounded, kind, academically prepared people for the years ahead.
Testing dates are as follows:
May 15: Grade 3 ELA Computer Adaptive Task
May 16: Grades 4 and 5 Math Computer Adaptive Task
May 17: Grades 4 and 5 Math Performance Task
May 18: Grade 3 ELA Performance Task 1
May 19: Grade 3 ELA Performance Task 2
May 22: Grade 3 Math Computer Adaptive Task
May 23: Grade 3 Math Performance Task
SCHOOLPOOL IS BACK!
We've had a great start to our SchoolPool Month! Wednesday Morning was our official "kick off". All students had the opportunity to collect a blue reflector flashlight for their backpacks (if your student missed out, stop by the office to pick one up).
A BIG Thank You
to the wonderful

Don't forget to complete the back side of the calendar completely AND sign your students calendars weekly if they are walking, biking, carpooling, or taking the bus to school. Once the calendar is all signed (at least 1 week), send it back to school with your child. Each calendar turned in with earn $10 for Rockwell Elementary!
